Almacenes San Jose
A giant warehouse turned into a hub for arts and crafts sellers, the Almacenes San Jose is a wonderful place to do most of your souvenir shopping in Havana. It’s a little bit away from the center of Old Havana, but it’s a lovely walk down Paula Avenue or a good excuse to ride a CocoTaxi or a rickshaw. Access to the market is free, and inside, dozens of stands distributed along long aisles have hundreds of products on display, from original paintings, photographs, and sculptures, hand-made clothes and bags to all kinds of tiny trinkets. There are also food stands, although to a lesser extent, and an outdoor area where you can enjoy the view of the bay.
